Depending on the course, Justin Thomas will alter his equipment setup to include either a Titleist 712U utility iron or 915Fd 5-wood. This week it was the 5-wood that got the call at PGA National, where Thomas used the club to hit a towering second shot from 258 yards on the first hole of a sudden-death that landed on the green, leading to a two-putt birdie for his seventh win in 31 events.

The 915Fd 5-wood has a smaller profile than the 915F and boasts a slightly deeper face, resulting in lower spin and increased workability. For Thomas, the club became a part of the normal rotation in the run-up to the 2016 Masters and has remained in the bag ever since.

"I actually got that [915Fd] 5-wood specifically for the [2016] Masters and the course setup at Augusta National," Thomas told PGATOUR.COM. "The greens are very firm and fast and hitting into par 5's you need to have a club that gives you some height to hold the surface. The 5-wood was perfectly geared for that shot and I've just continued to use it and really like having it when I need it. I probably need to start using it more because it's so easy to hit and I can really flight it nicely."
